Amazon's, One Link To Rule Them All...
Amazon has just stepped up it's affiliate marketing tools once again. You are now able to monetize your website, blogs, and social media posts in more than 5 countries. Meaning, one link for multiple countries.
No longer having to log into each amazon account for the country you are trying to target, is a huge time saver. One link automatically inserts the product link from your default country (country you live in) to the country you're targeting the sale for.
For instance, I live in the United States and I was looking for Amazon Gift Cards for the U.K. I found the product on Amazon.us and entered that Affiliate URL into One Link and it returned the product and link from the U.K. website. Now whenever anyone clicks that link in the U.K. and purchases gift cards, I receive commissions on my U.K. Amazon account. Pretty sweet.
Linking your accounts and redirecting your url allows you to send your user to their local Amazon store front for that product. If you click 'exact match' for the country and product, Amazon will only render the url if the selected country has the same product, this is best for social media and platforms that are not your self-hosted site. Not to confuse you because there is an easier way to monetize your website with Amazon.
What is Amazon's New OneLink?
Installing the oneTag Java-script code, OneLink will convert your traffic internationally. Imagine the revenue from other countries. Visitors will be sent to their closest Amazon site.
This script is backwards compatible so when it gets embedded into your sites footer, all previous and future ads will direct internationally.
Canada visitors will be redirected to amazon.ca. While, United Kingdom visitors will be diected to amazon.co.uk.
OneLink may only be accessed from a U.S. account, I'm sure that Amazon will render this issue in the future for multiple countries. You may still link manually to individual countries by the redirecting mode above.

Amazon OneLink Works Well With:
Native Banner Ads
Post and Page Links
Amazon OneLink does not work on YouTube channels not does it work with your favorite link shorteners, (bitly, tinyurl). Amazon does a great job of shortening the link by clicking short link, which is the default for product links.
